A communication dated December 18, 2007 was received from His Honor the Mayor as follows:

 

Dear President Doherty and Members of the City Council:

 

I urge you to support the $625,000 appropriation before you tonight in order to assist me in my efforts to successfully negotiate employee contracts for the fiscal year July 1, 2007 – June 30, 2008.

 

Our city employees certainly deserve a just and fair settlement of their respective contracts. This funding measure is an important component in this endeavor.

 

Your support of the appropriation will demonstrate your commitment and support of our dedicated workforce and will allow me the opportunity to successfully negotiate a number of collective bargaining contracts that expired on June 30th of this year.

 

Sincerely, s/Thomas L. McLaughlin, Mayor

 

Motion made and 2nd to suspend the rules for the purposes of taking the following matter out of order and to allow the mayor to address the city council on the matter, all in favor, 9-0. On the Order to appropriate the sum of $625,000.00 to Mayor Account for the purpose of negotiations, Committee on Finance report was received “ought not to pass”.

Mayor McLaughlin appeared and read the above communication into the record, that the city council should make the money available for the negotiations if it supports the settlement of the contracts, and that the discussion by the city council on one hand is to support the contracts and on the other to cut back on taxes. Alderman Galvin stated that the discussions in the committee on finance last night had nothing to do with supporting the unions or city employees, that he voted against the proposal because there are no negotiations ongoing and no contracts to settle, that he is trying to keep taxes low, that this vote would allow the city to tax to the levy limit, and that if there was a negotiated contract to settle the city could vote to appropriate the money at that time. Alderman Drapeau stated that he voted against the proposal in committee not because he does not support the unions but because he was thinking about people on fixed incomes, that he will vote against the proposal until the contracts are settled, that he spoke at length to the mayor and city council colleagues today concerning the proposal, that when he is campaigning and speaks to constituents on fixed income or middle income they want the taxes kept low, that if the money is added to the tax levy now the tax levy will be inflated next year, that it is the job of the city council to exercise fiscal responsibility, that he wants fair contracts, that the mayor will bring the unions together and make a good settlement, that he does not understand the concept of asking for the money before it is known how much will be needed, that the city needs a good relationship with the unions, that the city cannot keep adding on year after year, that the city has to shrink its government, that they city is becoming not affordable, that his constituents want him to hold the line, that he does not want to add onto the tax levy at this time, and that there is room in the tax levy cap. Alderman Dwyer stated that he voted against the proposal in committee not because he is against the unions but because he does not see how this will accelerate the negotiations, that the environment on this issue is tense, that he was surprised by the telephone calls he received on this issue, that he is not anti-union, antitaxpayer or anti-employee, and that if this accelerated negotiations he would support the proposal. Alderman Gonsalves stated that she was in support of the proposal, that the city can raise the funds for negotiations now through taxation or from savings at a later date, and that the city should not have to depend upon savings to pay for this. Alderman Denaro stated that the affect of this proposal on the tax rate will be eight cents, that the city has to decide how it will pay for what comes out of collective bargaining, that he asks whether the city council will support this funding later when the time comes to do so, that the mayor will have no credibility at the bargaining table, that the city council should fund the negotiations, that he is concerned with the impact on the next budget if this is not adopted, that he is prepared to do what needs to be done, that the city will try to keep taxes low, and that he urges the negative recommendation to be reconsidered. Alderman Gately stated that he was formerly on the other side of the bargaining table while working for the department of public works, that funding the negotiations gives the city credibility, and that he supports the proposal. President Doherty stated that there was a lengthy discussion in committee, that it never concerned whether the union members deserved a raise, that the city has a $1,300,000.00 tax levy gap which is sufficient to support union salary increases, that the property taxes can only be controlled by controlling the tax levy, that fixed income residents have been hurt each year for the past ten years, that new growth has been 2½ times what it should be, that the obligation of the city council is not to allow the levy increase, that there has been no contract bargaining yet, when the budget process begins there will still be $650,000.00 in the free cash account, that the city council has never not backed a contract settlement, that the city cannot keep putting the burden on the taxpayers, every department should be asked to come in and justify the line items in its budget, that the city council has to do what it can to control the budget, that long-term solutions are necessary, that he does not believe that there is transparency in the budget, that the increase in salaries can be built into the next budget, and that the mayor has to get to the bargaining table with the unions. Alderman Mercer-Bruen stated that it is difficult for her not to support this, that she was shocked to hear the claim that she was not supporting a raise as it was her understanding that she was not supporting a levy increase, that the city has a gap of $1,300,000.00 in the levy limit if it is needed, that some residents of the city have little money, that free cash is not free, that people live to their means, and that the city should tighten its belt. Motion made and

2nd that the COMMITTEE REPORT be ADOPTED, ROLL CALL: Denaro – No, Drapeau – Yes, Dwyer – No, Gately – No, Galvin – Yes, Gonsalves – No, Mercer-Bruen – Yes, Raymond – Yes, Doherty – Yes, ORDER DENIED.

PUBLIC HEARINGS:  

 

On the matter relative to Tax Classification for the City of Woburn. PUBLIC HEARING OPENED. Appearing was Andrew Creen, Chief Appraiser, Board of Assessors, and he offered a communication dated December 18, 2007 with a series of charts attached thereto entitled Fiscal Year 2009 Classification Hearing to the City Council as follows:

 

Dear President Doherty and Council Members:

 

The Board of Assessors is pleased to report that the valuation roll for fiscal year 2008 has been finalized after a reappraisal of all taxable properties was conducted by this office. The total assessed valuation for all real and personal property in the City effective January 1, 2007 is $5.864 billion. This represents an increase from the prior fiscal year’s total of $5.765 billion.

 

The City Council must now determine the relative tax burden to be borne by each class of property by selecting a “residential factor”. To assist the Council in its deliberations, several charts have been prepared and are attached to this correspondence. These charts illustrate relevant valuation and tax levy data and the impact of your vote this evening.

 

By selecting a residential factor of “1” a single tax rate of $13.00 results. Choosing a factor less than “1” results in a portion of the tax levy shifting from residential properties to commercial, industrial and personal property taxpayers. For example, adopting a residential factor of “.71” means that the residential class of property will pay 71% of the levy they would pay if there were no classification. Under this scenario, the levy increases for the other classes of property by a factor of 175 percent. The chart entitled “Classification Options” best illustrates the various scenarios available to you.

 

Woburn Board of Assessors s/ Robert E. Maguire, Jr., Chairman s/George J. Berardi, Secretary s/William F. Sullivan, Jr.

 

Mr. Creen stated that he was offering two documents entitled Tax Rate History and Classification Options to replace the pages in the original document to reflect the negative vote of the $625,000.00 appropriation at this meeting. Motion made and 2nd that the documents be received, that the two pages be replaced with the substitute documents and that they be made part of the record, all in favor, 9-0. Mr. Creen reviewed each of the charts with the city council. Mr. Creen stated that the levy limit is the amount that can be raised through taxation by the city, that Proposition 2½ allows an increase of $1,798,806.00 over last years levy limit, that new growth of $1,185,322.00 is allowed, that the total levy limit allowed when added to the FY 2008 levy limit is $74,936,739.00, that the average value of a single family home in FY 2007 was $370,000.00, that the average value in FY 2008 is $370,400.00, that the average residential value is $370,400.00, that the average tax bill is $340.00 and that the average residential tax increase will be $45.00, that if the same factor as last year was chosen the commercial/industrial rate would be $22.57 per thousand dollars of value, that there has been some commercial value growth, that the city has been using a factor of 175% since 2004, that residential values have not changed much as market values have dropped, that the number of sales have dropped, that the average days a property was on the market in 2005 was 65 days, in 2006 it was 104 days and in 2007 it was 120 days, that the city can raise $75,000,000.00 in taxes no matter at what price a house is valued, that the first two tax bills are preliminary bills using an average from the prior year, that the third and fourth quarter bills reflect the total tax bill for the year with the increase divided in half between the two bills, and that the assessment is a snapshot in time as of the first day in

January. Alderman Drapeau stated that that residential real estate market is stagnant, that houses seem to be selling for less than the assessed value, and that taxes are based on the budget passed in July so for a median priced home the tax assessment should remain the same. President Doherty stated that the assessed value of property has increased $28,000,000.00, and that next year he wants to see how the assessed value of new growth and the commercial/industrial property has changed. PUBLIC COMMENTS: Paul Meaney, Executive Director, Woburn Business Association, Ten Tower Office Park, Woburn stated that he supports the factor of 175%, that there are a lot of local businesses which pay fees, unemployment compensation, workers compensation and insurance, that may are family owned and not large businesses, that they support community activities, and that the city council should keep these small businesses in mind. John Salemme, 338 Russell Street offered several statistics comparing the expenses of the city of Woburn with other communities. Mayor Thomas McLaughlin stated that a factor of 175% is a good financial plan. Kathy Bailey, 4 Utica Street stated that she is concerned what the expense of constructing a new Goodyear School will do to the tax rate. Mayor McLaughlin stated that the city has not heard officially from the School Building Commission, that the city is in a good position to re-build the school, that the construction also depends upon an authorization by the city council, that this might be accomplished without any increase in taxes, and that he will not support a debt exclusion or a Proposition 2½ override. Motion made and 2nd to close the public hearing, all in favor, 9-0. Motion made and 2nd that the public hearing be closed, all in favor, 9-0. PUBLIC HEARING CLOSED. Motion made and 2nd that a TAX CLASSIFICATION

FACTOR OF 175% be ADOPTED, Roll Call: Denaro – Yes, Drapeau – Yes, Dwyer – Yes, Gately – Yes, Galvin – Yes, Gonsalves – Yes, Mercer-Bruen – Yes, Raymond – Yes, Doherty – Yes.
